CIS is a public entity that provides insurance and risk management services to Oregon cities and counties and other public entities created by these cities and counties. Based in Salem, CIS was formed in 1981 by its parent organizations, the League of Oregon Cities and Association of Oregon Counties. The majority of cities and counties in Oregon participate in one or more CIS programs (auto, property, liability, workers' compensation, and employee benefits).
